Winter Birding in South Carolina and Georgia
More details about this Trip:
Any part of the Atlantic coast of the US can provide exciting birding in winter. The coastal plain of South
Carolina and Georgia is no exception. This area offers a chance to find birds more common farther north (Great Cormorant, Purple Sandpiper) as well as several species more common to the south (Black-bellied Whistling-Duck, Common Ground-Dove). The addition of resident birds only adds to the interesting list of target species possible on this trip: King Rail, Red-cockaded Woodpecker, Brown-headed Nuthatch.
Other species we will be looking for include Red-throated Loon (sometimes dozens in one ocean view), Tundra Swan, Anhinga, Clapper Rail, Piping Plover, Seaside Sparrow…and up to twenty shorebird species, a dozen types of ducks and four or five warblers, including Pine and Orange-crowned Warblers.
